Happy Anniversary!

Sixty years ago, this fresh-faced Woodborough couple said “I Do”
Can you guess who it is? (Answer at the bottom of the page)

Woodborough Local History Group

Last month, we heard all about Boots which, as you would expect featured quite a bit about Nottingham, this month, we are spreading our wings or is it our sea legs?

Our next History Group meeting is on Thursday, November 21st, when our very own Michael Harrison will be giving us his riveting new talk entitled “It’s Mighty Drafty round Cape Horn.”

As usual, our meetings, in the Institute, are open to anyone who has an interest in the past, and visitors and new members are very welcome to join us. We start at 7.30 pm and light refreshments are served following the talk. There is a small admission charge.

Don’t Fall For The
“Please Press 1”

A reader has written to us regarding a new telephone scam:

“Please be aware there is an new Amazon scam where you receive a telephone call to apologise ‘Amazon Prime have taken £39 in error and to press 1 for them to reimburse you’.

A person then asks you to connect your Ipad or computer to your Amazon Account, then as they ask for more details you realise it is a scam.

Google ‘Amazon Scam’ to read reports.

I thought people may wish to be made aware of this new scam.”
